to school on government money but is against government. aside from the awkward drink of water, i think his real problem is that it was the wrong night, wrong city. tuesday night in washington, wednesday night in new york. there is a place called the apollo. amateur night on wednesday night at the apollo. >> ouch. that hurt me in the crossfire. lawrence o'donnell. >> it was a major proposal that he kept under a certain wracked by not mentioning the number. he said that he was willing, in this negotiation, to avoid the sequestered and offered to the republicans' medicare cuts. he did not specify an amount, just the same amount that the bulls commission wanted. he suggested arriving at them in very vague ways, one having more affluent seniors play more. there are a variety of ways to do that. one of them, probably were most of the savings would be, to change the nature of medicare payments from a fee-for-service system, which is very reassuring to the patience, to something that he was very vague about but was probably an overall fee for a patient in which the doctor, many would argue, begins
's nuclear program. for years the governments here and in the u.s. have said north korea was some way of having a miniaturize device suitable for use on top of a missile. at least, this test brings that prospect closer. despite last year's successful rocket launch, north korea has yet to develop ballistic missile that could strike the u.s. that the country it says its nuclear weapons programs are targeted at. a miniaturized bomb would emboldened p'yongyang. >> it will give them more confidence that they have a credible deterrent. i personally believe they want a deterrent to keep americans out and to buy them room in which they can operate. >> of the president lee myung- bak held talks. the country's military is on watch for north korea's next move. >> we have strengthened the readiness of our military by increasing the security alert level to level two and we have activated the joint surveillance platform with the u.s. to monitor and north korean military movements. announcements in recent days in north korean media have led to speculation that their young leader might be backing awa
. >> well, good evening. and behind us here tonight, the entire government will be gathered in one building for the president's state of the union address, and in many ways, tonight the real work of the second term of the obama presidency begins. at least the part the president would like to accomplish and where he sees the nation headed. he faces, of course, a sharply divided congress, sometimes violently so, and a divided viewing audience. here tonight, a nation starting to see some daylight after years of recession, and it's the long, suffering middle class that will be the target of much of his message tonight. we should tell you at the same time, we are following a very tense news event, across the continent on the west coast in the san berardino mountains, gunfire and then a fire over an hour we've been watching this in a cabin in the woods believed to contain the sniper, ex-cop, the military veteran that has terrorized southern california for days. another loss of life tonight. a police deputy there confirmed dead and if this situation is resolved, we're keeping a close eye on it, we

loved to hire people who were formerly powerful government officials, they're a heavily regulated industry and heavily dependent on the government and they got the bailout. so, what's the point of hiring somebody like jack lew. i'm sure he has a lot of abilities, acumen on balancing the budget sheets and these things. that's fine, but they have a lot of-- the reason you hire people like jack lew is for entree into washington and help getting things done in a highly regulated industry and could you argue he earned every penny. >> megyn: the wall street journal asking the question did mr. lew feel guilty the check from the taims and president obama the champion of the middle class and this guy got a million dollars of money for a company who needed our bailout. issue number two, his investments in the cayman islands. they're perfectly legal, right? no one is challenging that these are illegal in any way, a question whether our treasury secretary should be dodging or a loophole out of paying the top rate in taxes. just for context, chris, before we go to what mr. lew did and how he h
a very dramatic reform of the department as the federal government came in and forced changes down the department's throat after several scandals. bratton latched on to the changes and made sure that the department actually bought into them. and in doing so really changed the story line of the lapd. and that said, this whole episode, while you would think nobody would want to touch dorn were a ten-foot pole we have been inundated with e-mails and calls from lapd cops and from the public that say the old lapd is still alive and well. even if that's not the case, and i don't think it is, the memories and the pain and the scars from that time are still very much on the surface. >> it often goes down to personal experiences with the police that are anecdotal, but of course they drive how you think about any life experience. they dominate your thinking. and of course the past is always with. thank you, joel rubin of "the l.a. time." clint van zandt is now with us. clint, thank you. i've been watching you on knbc as we monitor the situation. do we have clint? we don't have clint. >> yeah

and special investty -- investigative to study all laws and government activities are involving nonmilitary research and development remaining the same. i'd like to extend a warm welcome to the witnesses today, really appreciate you guys being here. also, i want to welcome our returning members and our new members including the subcommittees' ranking member and distinguished gentleman from new york new york. i look forward to working with you all and the ranking member on this committee. today's hearing focusing on intergrating unmanned aircraft systems or uas, into the national air space. as a pilot, i'm extremely interested in this issue. specifically, we hope to gain a better understanding of the risk, the technology obstacles, and key research and development efforts being undertaken to overcome the obstacles. uas has garnered a great deal of attention lately. in fact, if you watched the news this morning, there's a lot of -- lot of news about this issue. in january, pbs's "nov a" had a documentary called "rise of the drones," and last week's "time" magazine cover carried the same title
matthews said rubio said government is not the answer, but talked about medicare for his mother and a student loan he received that perhaps allow him to be the senator that he is today. what do you make of the conflict there? >> i think that senator rubioey performance is fine. i am not hung up on the water incident. >> the issue of the role of government. >> substantively the short coming to answer the question is he didn't do anything in that speech to expand the tent. the issue that you raise about the role of government is an example of where there koochb compromise, but it hasn't been forth comprehending. he had a good presentation, but the same set of remarks with a different and perhaps more appealing face delivering them. >> as you are talking about the substance, we are talking about the water. it was over 90,000 tweets. his issue about the role of government and we talked about this a lot. there is not just a mote, but there is maybe the grand canyon between the two parties over the role of government. these are ideological differences that will not be solved. >> it re
infrastructure investments were frequently subsidized by the federal government, water pricing was often calculated without accounting for the initial cost to build the systems. we made major investments in assets in the '50s, '60s, and '70s. and for the first 40 years of that pipe, there really may not have been many maintenance requirements. we're past that period now. narrator: water pricing based only on day-to-day operation, and not on planning for maintenance and eventual upgrades has resulted in a considerable repair and replacement backlog. allbee: on a national scale, if you looked at what we're spending now, and you looked at the additional investment requirements over the next 20 years, there's a $540 billion difference. man: so one of the greatest challenges is to reflect true value pricing. so that the citizens and businesses that rely on water and wastewater infrastructure systems are actually paying for it. narrator: cities and municipalities across the united states are now facing this funding gap, between projected revenue and projected expenses, as they strive to mainta
up, but first, risky federal programs. by that i mean a new report by the government accountability of this unveiling the 30 federal programs and operations that3 have the highest risk for race, fraud and abuse, six of which have been the lowest ever since it was first released in 1990. with more on this demand editorial board member of the wall street journal. my question was, only 30? >> that's right. this is only the latest lesson. if you go over the reports from the last ten years are so you're going to find literally hundreds of programs that have been on the watch. by the way, i go back to the early 1980's when you have the famous reports of the regular administration that found huge events of ways, many programs still exist, and the reason i think this story is important is we are coming very close to this point where we are going to have these automatic across-the-board cuts of about five or 6 percent in his domestic programs. the agency heads will say we can't take these cuts. it will require, you know, cuts of valuable services, and vatican support for the american people
. the quote of the night it is not a bigger government we need. it is a smarter government. >>brian: the president can deliver a speech. he was totally in his element yesterday. he looked totally -- anyone who wants to do well in front of a crowd, you look at bill clinton, ronald reagan and i think president obama. here's the area on which they can agree. immigration reform, both sides agree. voting reform, both sides agree. tax reform, both sides agree. how are they going to do it? at least we know they can approach that together. the spending stuff, why isn't anybody talking about a infrastructure bank, maybe a combination or mostly private banks who have all this money and don't want to spend it or lend it, maybe the government can push the private banks lending into build these bridges in a way in which states can pay back or the people can pay back. >>steve: you were taublging about what a great -- talking about what a great speech the president of the united states gave. there's franken. were you watching john boehner? that guy looked like the guy at the end of a big dinner wh
for a more robust government presence in the economy and saying government and government spending which will rebuild the middle class. he won't call it government spending, he will call it investing and three areas in particular where the president wants to raise the spending level, invest more. they are edation, energy, and infrastructure. he wants to raise the level of spending in those three areas, that he believes, will create jobs. all of this will be partly paid for by raising the amount of money that the government takes from wealthy individuals, raising the amount of money that it takes from corporations and getting more money out of oil companies. overall, alisyn, it will ab fairly aggressive pursuit of the same policies we've been seeing for the last four years, for the next four years. he'll be aggressive this year. >> critics will say this new term, investment in the future is a synonym for stimulus. is there an argument to be made that the white house, i imagine, will make that stimulus was short-term, nd decades to come?future are >> speaker pelosi, former speaker pelosi i
and don't expect governments to be forth coming about that. >> let me ask you briefly as the u.n. goes back into session to look at sanctions, what more can be done at this point? >> very little on an international scale. in 2009 they came out with some very good sanctions, but it didn't really influence the north koreans' actions. i don't think there's any marginal addition to the sanctions that are in place. they're going to call on the north koreans to blink, if you will. very little from an international point of view. necessary but won't produce an outcome. >> brown: ambassador jack pritchard and james acton, thank you both very much. >> thank you. >> woodruff: we have more about today's nuclear test on our web site, including a dispatch on reaction in seoul, south korea, from our partner global post, plus links to previous newshour stories on north korea. and still to come on the newshour, white house spokesman jay carney; palm oil production in malaysia; osama bin laden's killer; plus, shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreeniva
that this government works on behalf of the many, and not just the few. that it encourages free enterprise, rewards individual initiative, and opens the doors of opportunity to every child across this great nation. >> reporter: president obama championing a progressive agenda where government is used to spark the economy. but aware of criticism that americans can't afford it. >> nothing i'm proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime. it is not a bigger government we need, but a smarter government that sets priorities and invests in broad-base growth. >> reporter: the president's opposition immediately accusing him of reckless spending that will hurt the middle class. florida senator marco rubio delivering the gop response in both english and spanish. and after a quick water break, reminding voters that unlike the last republican standard bearer, he is not a multi-millionaire. >> i don't oppose your plans because i want to protect the rich. i oppose your plans because i want to protect my neighbors. >> reporter: there were nods to foreign policy, an official announcement of afgha
toy world. >> we saw with his nomination something truly extraordinary which is the government of iran formally and publicly praising the nomination of a defense secretary. >> senator hagel is an honorable man, he has served his country and no one on this committee at any time should impugn his character or his integrity. >> john mccain or roy blount are critical here if they don't participate in this filibuster, it seems as though he will move ahead. what's changed from when john mccain thought that chuck hagel was worthy of a nomination until now? >> a lot of it was iraq. >> so is it political pay back? >> it is like a lot of things, it's both political and personal. i think john mccain in kind of brushing back ted cruz was trying to sort of sort out the personal and the political. the problem for mccain is, if it looks like this is purely personal and that it's an attack, then it kind of diminishes his credibility. he's trying to keep the argument on substance, but there's no question for john mccain, it is also personal. these two men were friends, they were part of a band of broth
with government, they chose one that i like. here it goes. >> two... one. >> bret: nine golfers from campbell university simultaneous putt. another look at it. this is from the pga management school and they all get it to drop at once. that is a special. fair and balanced and unafraid. >> shep: this is the fox report. tonight from the coastguard, now we know what caused that fire on board the carnival ship triumph but the investigation is far from over. >> shep: plus the untimely death of mindy mccready. >> if i would do things so differently if i could go back and do things differently. >> she had plenty of regret and those issues were apparently too much to bear. from rehab to a custody fight to an alleged affair with an all-star pitcher. the life and early death of mindy mccready. >> a cover girl shot dead and star athlete. did he murder his girlfriend in a fit of jealousy or roid rage? possible new evidence in the valentine's day killings. >> plus, we saw an asteroid just miss earth and meteor slam into russia yet another over california and now a fireball over florida. >> it was very lar
republicans to support him. he says that people expect the government to put the nation's interest before parties. photographs of a bikini clad duchess of cambridge on holiday are being published in magazines. also in the program, aaron is taking a look at what persia's profits are driving off a cliff. >> $6.7 billion, that is what france's biggest carmaker loss last year. plus europe continues to be bogged down in recession. all of this has the french government up at night as they refuse to allow the company to close factories and cut jobs. ♪ >> it is midday in london, 7:00 a.m. in washington, 1:00 in the afternoon in italy, where the pope received a lengthy ovation at his first appearance after announcing his resignation. he repeated what he told cardinals on monday, that he simply did not have the strength to continue his duties. adam johnson is in the vatican for us and joins us now. quite a moving experience for those present? >> indeed. we are here in rome at the start of a fortnight, the likes of which catholic churches have not seen in the modern history, where worshipers aroun
of the choice that was made to put in combined sewer systems. narrator: in 1994, the government adopted a combined sewer overflow policy to reduce csos nationwide. cities with combined sewer overflows now face an enforcement action called a consent decree. under a consent decree, a city must reduce pollution levels significantly within a strict time frame or face heavy fines. in 1960, the combined sewer overflows were a perfectly legitimate way of dealing with sewers. woman: the mind set was that, what did it matter if we were sending our waste downstream? water was a good conveyance for pollution. man: sewer systems are installed to reduce public health problems. now what you're doing is transferring the problem, you're transferring it to downstream cities. in addition, cities and towns above pittsburgh were doing the same thing. and then they were affecting the water intakes of pittsburgh. 90% of this region gets its drinking water from those same rivers that we have overflows occurring. hecht: we have sewage overflow with as little as 1/10" inch of rain. and our average storm here is

[applause] martha: let's bring in stuart varney. stuart, what the president is proposing is it really paid for? it is hard to imagine how that could be. >> well the president is proposing a big increase in government spending. that's how he thinks we're going to get growth in the economy. he is basically saying that it is the private sector that has got to pay for it. there is a long list of items, martha. number one, he wants universal preschool. not a word how that would be paid for. that is a big new entitlement program. number two, $50 billion of road and bridge building. three, one billion dollars spent on 15 manufacturing hubs where up-and-coming manufacturing technology would be encouraged. a billion dollars th

of the handling of the sex abuse crisis but the only way the election of the next pope affects is how he governs the church. is he willing to tell people that elected him you're out of office. >> right. >> go to a monastery and wait for the cops. that would restore confidence in the vatican and in the papacy. but short of that there's no one signal. actually, there's not going to be one signal in the election of the next pope because everyone is looking at other factors too like geography or region or anything else. so it's not just one -- it's not just one issue. >> do you have hopes who the next pope will be. >> i like to speak to that more, the lack of moral credibility. the roman catholic church is known for its condemnation on issues relating to sexual morality. there's no credibility. in terms of pope most of the men that will vote for this pope have been selected by pope john paul ii or pope benedict xvi. it's not a real investment in our glory social justice in this church. i don't like to discount the holy spirit. >> can i ask you this question. if there are frustrations you have with t
or who you love. it is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many. and not just the few. and it encourages free enterprise, rewards individual initiatives and opens the doors of opportunity to every child across this great nation. the american people don't expect government to solve every problem. they don't expect those of us in this chamber to agree on every issue. but they do expect us to put the nation's interests before party. [ applause ] they do expect us to forge reasonable compromise where we can. for they know that an american moves forward only when we do so together. and that the responsibility of improving this union remains the task of us all. now, our work must begin by making some basic decisions about our budget. decisions that will have a huge impact on the strength of our recovery. over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion. mostly through spending cuts, but also by raising tax rates on the wealthiest 1% of americans. as a result, we are more than halfway towards the

by a government that are too small is just not true. in fact, the major cause of our recent downturn is the housing crisis created by reckless government policies and the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hard-working middle-class taxpayers is an idea that has failed every time it has been tried. >> democrats on the other hand gave senator rubio low marks for similar comments. just about the same time, 10:31. >> presidents in both parties from john f. kennedy to ronald reagan have known that our free enterprise economy is the source of our middle-class prosperity. but president obama he believes it is the cause of our problems. that the economic downturn happened because our government didn't tax enough, spend enough or control enough. and therefore, as you heard tonight, his solution to virtually every problem we face is for washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more. >> with independents, senator rubio scored low marks at 10:40 when he spoke about the second amendment. >> of course we face other challenges, as well. we were all heart
